How We Prepare You to Land Internships
Great internships don't just happen. You need to have developed valuable skills, created a good resume, received expert guidance, and you need an "in." At Champlain, we make sure you are well-prepared in all four areas.
- The Upside-Down Curriculum allows you to get extensive classroom learning and hands-on experience with industry professionals in your major in your first year, which gives you the real world skills and qualifications to begin taking internships as early as the summer after the first year.
- The Office of Career Services and the Life Experience Action Dimension (LEAD) program will help you develop your professional resume and teach you interview skills.
- Your professors will become your reliable mentors, pointing out the strategic academic and co-curricular activities they will help you build your professional skill-set and enhance your resume.
- Local and national employers turn to Champlain for college interns because they are universally better prepared to work in professional environments than the majority of their peers from other institutions. Many Champlain Graduates receive full and part-time job offers from the organizations where they first took their internships.
